2. Contributing to empowering Palestinian women economically, to reduce unemployment as well as providing job opportunities and eliminating all the types of discrimination and gaps based on gender.
3. Contributing to raising political awareness of Palestinian women, to encourage them to participate in civil democratic life and to involve in advocacy and lobby decision makers and to ensure fair laws for women.
4. To improve the Palestinian society's awareness and capacity building for governmental and nongovernmental organizations about gender's policies and procedures as well as the importance of gender's contribution towards Palestinian society welfare.
